Oculus Rift = HTC Vive for room-scale. Really? You were saying it was better earlier in the thread. Make up your mind. Having owned a Vive since they launched (and a Rift before I sold it), I'm not sure where you're getting jitter from? Not once had an issue with that. Or reflections. Although, I removed all the pictures from the walls in the VR room to stop them getting smashed by flailing controllers! But there is a window, and it's in direct line with one of the lighthouses, and never caused any problems. Plus, you seem to be in a minority of one. A quick google for "rift vs vive roomscale" did not turn up a single result where the conclusion was that the Rift was superior. 98% of them said Vive (albeit by varying degrees with most being slightly). https://www.reddit.com/r/oculus/comments/5sxw1j/oculus_roomscale_3_sensors_vs_vive_roomscale/ And that's on the Oculus subreddit where they normally trash anything Vive related. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Oculus roomscale is *bad*. It's just not *quite* as good as the Vive. And for me, having been messing with VR since DK1, it REALLY came alive when I finally got to try roomscale. VR is good. VR you can fully walk around in is awesome! But, once all the extra bits appear to go with the Vive Pro, it will stop being a contest again for a while until/unless Oculus do something to catch up. The v2 lighthouses will put it a LONG way ahead ... https://www.digitaltrends.com/virtual-reality/oculus-rift-vs-vive-pro/ Add in the cable-free adaptor, and I suspect that will be the first time I've actively contemplated updating from the original. I'll just need a bigger house to use it in. LOL. The Pro headset on it's own wasn't really enough of a jump to justify it for me. I know Oculus have the Go, but that won't stand the test of time, as it will be limited by it's own hardware. With the Vive Pro, as things advance, you just do as you do now and upgrade the parts of the PC that need it. The Go is a nice idea, but when it's out of date in a couple of years, you'd need an entirely new one. Just like a console. But, having owned both, and with 20 years of hardware and software performance testing under my belt, I'm quite happy with my own assessment of them. Have a nice day. (PS - The other thing I've wondered about the Touch controllers for the Rift, what are the like strength wise? I know my wands for the Vive have had some full blooded smashes into brick wall - usually tennis shots - and the wall is covered in marks, but the controllers are both, amazingly, still fine! The Touch controllers don't look like they'd take that kind of punishment to me?)

Mark_DS

No, Oculus Rift = HTC Vive for roomscale. Saying otherwise is just wrong... Tracking is not better on the Vive. It's comparable. Rift has no jitter and Vive does have jitter. Less issues with reflections on Rift. Touch controllers are superior. Vive lighthouses are much easier to setup and more convenient. Vive works with bigger areas. There are good and bad points to both. Your opinion may be that Vive is better suited your needs, but that's ignoring what Rift does better. Oculus Rift = HTC Vive for room-scale. No point taking sides when the truth speaks for itself. Simple as that.

sancheez

And you're right. You'll get roomscale. You can also get roomscale on the PSVR. But neither are as good as the Vive. And it'll pull even further in front of the field when the v2 lighthouses become available. Oculus themselves even only recommend 8ft x 8ft with a 3 sensor setup. The Vive will go up to 12ft x 12ft comfortably. And has been tested well beyond that. Plus, the accuracy of the lighthouses is better than the Oculus cameras. Simple as that. Not to mention the cabling and number of ports used by Oculus is insane. The Vive is a WAY neater and cleaner setup. If you're gonna grade roomscale it's: PSVR - OK Oculus - Very Good (with 3 cameras - drops to "Good" with 2) Vive - Excellent But you need the space for it. VR is a niche market. Roomscale is a niche within the niche. But if open area VR is what you're gunning for ......

Mark_DS

Anyone reading this, this isn't true. Rift 3 sensor = Vive for roomscale. Vive is easier to setup. Rift + cost of third sensor is cheaper for the same result.

D0minic

Yeah I agree, I don't even use Facebook but I need the rift still for the ASW as some games are so demanding even my 2080ti can't run smooth on a Vive Pro or odyssey+, then I'll use the rift instead those times

That game is compatible with Windows mixed reality headsets like the Samsung Odyssey Plus but for some reason it is not listed as being so in steam. Same thing for other games. They are compatible but not listed as being so on Steam. You can see the person in the video playing the game on WMR headset.

Medussa.16

Hmm I have checked most games and they only are only supported with the htc vive and oculus rift and only some are by windows reality I have put two pictures of one of the biggest vr games and that does not support the Samsung

dz1

Of course it has the sensors. They are built into the headset instead of being separate like they are on the Vive pro. Not sure you are correct about steam compatibility either. Most steam games not compatible? I highly doubt that but I'm not sure as I don't have the headset and sounds like neither do you.

Medussa.16

The Samsung odyssey plus isn’t compatible on most steam/pc games also I doesn’t have the sensors like the htc so That probably means it can’t detect if you are moving forward or backwards

Yes, if you don't get distracted by the Fresnel lens, it then personally I think it wins over the Oculus everywhere. Tracking wires, I found the Rift got my face way too hot and being a glasses wearer it was awkward to get on and off.

If you have VR it's well worth getting on the mailing list by subbing. Over the years I have had three different HTC Vives and probably paid for 2 months of subscriptions with them. Most VR games are short so you can really see if a game is worth kepping using the 5 game rental. They have given me :- 1) 8 months of free subscriptions though emailed codes 2) £8($10) for buying a few games (hopefully similar for being a subscriber on 20th November) 3) Free games Nevrosa, Everest, Shooty Fruity, Overview, Guns'n'Stories, Final Soccer VR, Arcade Saga, Front Defense, Super Puzzle Galaxy. (Plus that £8 bought me Together VR and a bit of Accounting+) The Vive Video player is the best 360 player imo, I have redeemed a few games with them and they also just show up in steam or Viveport shows all your steam vr games.

SavageDonkey

If you have never used Viveport then it's free as you can take out a 14 day free trial and then keep the free game at the end. If you pay £8.99 (not £9.99) for the month, it's like renting 5 games for the month (Games like Call to Starseed 1 and 2 which will be very short). You will then get $10 on Nov 20th for being subscribed. So it can be a free game if you take the free trial... FREE I tell you FREE!! ;)

Still awfully broken the last time I tried to buy it on Steam, cost £2.97 and I managed to get a refund. Constant crashes, that have work-arounds, but I wasn't willing to take the risk on it. (Deus Ex)

FlashDave

Mankind Divided was a bad game, it ends abruptly after 10 hours and requires a sequel. Stealth was way to easy. Each of the 3 DLC last 4 hours and they restart your characters progress with no choices carry over to the main game. This is suppose to be an immersive RPG! Eidos blew so much time and money on the pay2win breach mode that is now a free standlone and they expected the players to pay for that. It's a shame, the game could've been great but it isn't and 5 years wasted and requires another 5 years to finish!. Cypberpunk2077 shows us what it could've been like.

Halo is one of the best games I've ever played though

MBeeching

Yet to try a Vive but I love the Rift. Current VR tech certainly divides opinion :) I find the existing hardware incredibly inspirational and couldn't be more excited about future development and content. Totally appreciate that the resolution and FOV isn't quite there yet for some people, that's fair enough.

dunnin

Haven't tried the vive or the rift, but I have a ps4 pro and psvr and will say the same sde is negligible must be due to the rgb sub pixels. The games look great resident evil 7 is a good example as is playroom vr and arkham vr. Other games ive played are more comparable to ps3 (graphically)but still great immersive experiences. Any how heat for the deal as is the best price atm :D :D

PiiWii

Im voting hot because this deal IS hot. Not because a mate of a girlfriends brother read somewhere that VR was overpriced/low resolution/whatever. Sounds like most of you have never experienced VR at all. If you have ever played games like Skyrim VR, Arizona Sunshine, LA Noire VR and many others you would know just how immersive VR is. Great deal. Well done OP.

richb3012

I agree with others, when I tried VR (on a mate's custom built £1500 pc) I thought I was playing a Nintendo Wii game. Completely underwhelmed, and I had the impression that my mate was gutted that he'd spent so much to get such a poor experience ( but he didn't want to let on!).

IamChris

this is really only relevant for people with a vive already. It's so expensive that I can only see it being desirable to people with so much disposable income that spending £1000 on something that will have little value in a year is no big deal. I would love this and the pimax but my rift already lets me experience all VR titles about as good as my 1060 can handle. My VR headset upgrade will have to have a significant resolution upgrade and be wireless (and hopefully no sensors as well) this will not be affordable for a few years yet but when it is hopefully a 1160 or 1260 will be able to handle 8k+ VR resolutions without a problem.

hudealer

"Where did you pic up your controllers etc from OP?" From my old Vive. "Now let's see how cold this gets!" I said this because I expected it, not because I think this is cold myself. I'm probably alone with this view, but I think high-end VR kit like this is the bargain of the century. We are incredibly fortunate (1 in billions or trillions) to be living in a time where technology like this is available. For Google Earth VR alone, not to mention space travel and all the other possibilities. The way I justify the spend is by simply comparing to a holiday. I'd rather have an optimal VR setup at home versus a family trip to Orlando for a couple of weeks. Personally I see more value in this, the most sophisticated VR in the market today, but each to their own. "it is dead on arrival, pimax 8k is the only real vr experience worth trying, this is nothing but a gimmick" I see Vive Pro as better overall. Yes, Pimax has more pixels and field of view, but I'm with Vive because: + Well known and recognised brand (HTC) and retailer (John Lewis) behind it. + Well respected partners support (Valve/Steam, Apple, Intel...) + Full retail product and not a prototype or even first gen product anymore + Apps/games optimised for it + Superior in other ways: comfort, size, weight, audio, cameras, phone integration, chaperone etc + Premium accessories including sophisticated Intel-based wireless option round the corner + Lots more points but this is enough Mine is due to arrive tomorrow, can post review if people are interested. Disclaimer: I got 5% discount and as a developer can claim VAT back so I'm paying closer to £666, plus after selling old Vive headset and Audio accessory should be paying even less... Still I think it's worth far more than £799 but let's find out tomorrow.

ukez

Because the manufacturer's still don't get that the majority of people who want to entertain that whole VR thing can't warrant £700+ on a headset which to get the best out of it requires another £700+ GTX1080TI GPU to properly run it at a level that allows you to experience the full benefits and cost of the damn thing. No point in getting a top of the range VR headset then running it on a RX480 or GTX1060 or something like that. Oculus got it right when they dropped the price of the Rift down to a more reasonable £399 with controllers and even lower price point with the new Rift GO which I think will be £200 which will suffice allot of users even if it ain't as technologically on par with the proper rift. I personally know 7 people who've got a RIFT and only one whos got a VIVE and I can confirm that they were all on them for around the first 3-5 weeks of owning them and all these months later none of them really use them because either the games are too short, theirs not enough triple A titles or they cant be assed with all the cables and setup Vs just jumping on your usual games, but ask any of them if they want to sell them as they never use them and they will all say NO as per usual.. (lol)

rd3d2

When you compare this headset with the Samsung Oddyssey (Same res and OLED display) which is currently available at $399 on Amazon.com (and doesn't need all the extras that the HTC does) then I think you probably have your answer.

Piec3_of_Toast

Nothing comes close to the Touch controllers for the Rift. I say, try out a demo and compare. I did and although the rift can be a little difficult to set up, once you get a good 4x4m play area, it's by far the best experience (imo) £800 is also an insane price for just the headset.
